Tailing the Komets

At practice today

Some updates:

Pasacal Morency says he should be able to go this weekend coming back from a separated shoulder.

A.J. Bozoian is still day-to-day with a hip pointer/abdominal strain, but he thinks he'll be ready to go.

Everybody was in a good mood and seemed ready to go for the weekend.

......but you may want to keep your distance.

How does someone from Cincy become a Komet fanatic? Did you used to live here?

Hit...you taking me up on the McWhinney gets a start this weekend wager or did Bingham already tell you at lunch this week he was playing?

I just have a feeling he will play at home this weekend. For one....Quad City is one of the weaker teams in the league and two, he has seen Rockford before. Hopefully he gets a start that way maybe we can put the "we want McWhinney" screams to bed.

Kalamazoo 9, Chicago 1

Scoops, Why so defensive?

Thu, 11/30/2006 - 8:04am

I am a Fort Wayne girl and just moved down here in April. Komet hockey has spoiled me! We have an ECHL team, but they're nothing like our Komets!

I will not stand in your way of any Casey Kasum long distance dedications you may do for MJ. I was just too lazy to do a caps lock LOL. There was no intended tone.

That's good, I had "Somewhere out there" in mind.. I just need a inspiring story to go along with the dedication....

MJ welcome to the blog. I am glad to see with all of the strange things going on around here newcomers are still sticking their heads in.

Tony and Greg are another pair of sidekicks..

Thu, 11/30/2006 - 11:35am

Am I Butch or Sundance???

Thu, 11/30/2006 - 12:15pm

JM - I used to LOVE that song! I actually sang it in a school vocal competition many years ago. Inspiring story - what could be more inspiring than star-crossed bloggers?

Tony, I hate to disappoint you but I am a lurker, not a newcomer. PS Did you ever find a Thunder Bay Thundercats puck?

LOL I have no sidekicks or friends...
The closer people get to me, the more they want to kill me.
MJ no I haven't . I have plans to take a trip up that way later this winter. I will stick my head into one of the local hobby shops and see what I can do.

Thu, 11/30/2006 - 2:40pm

I know for a fact that coach Bingham has not yet told either player or anyone else who is starting in goal when this weekend.

Thu, 11/30/2006 - 2:52pm

If I wasn't already elected to be Hits sidekick I'd be yours Tony LOL

Thu, 11/30/2006 - 3:16pm

Lol thanks Heather. I was thinking about it and maybe I need a side kick to balance all of the rear kicks I keep getting!

Thu, 11/30/2006 - 3:25pm

Is there a rule that you can only be one persons sidekick? I sure hope not LOL

I hate to ask a stupid question but here goes anyway. Can McWhinney opt out of his contract or does he have to be released?

Thu, 11/30/2006 - 4:29pm

So anyone have any info on the 2 rookies the K's are supposed to sign? Nick Tuzzolino who is a 6-5 d-man and Micheal George who is a forward.

Scoops reminds me more of Nipsy Russell anyway...you know...he was on my show all the time. Scoops is just a bit defensive about everything...ease up dude. It is just a freaking blog site. MAN!

I have no clue what you are talking about a wager or about having lunch with Bingham. You have lost me there. Tyoe whatever you want though. You are just trying to get a reaction anyway...right? Pot calling the kettle black? Is that what you meant?

He can't opt out of his contract and play again in the UHL. Most other teams in other leagues will not touch him either because it would set a bad precident.

Tony E
Thu, 11/30/2006 - 5:17pm

I know fairly well of Tuzzolino having seen him in the OHL the last several years. Here is a scouting report on him

Is this the same George Michael that we all know and love. You gotta have Faith in him....LOL

don't look now there's a monkey on your back!!!

Thu, 11/30/2006 - 5:22pm

Wonder if he will be a father figure to the rest of the team or not?

Hit Somebody!!!
Thu, 11/30/2006 - 5:23pm

Larry The PA Guy will have fun with that guy if we sign him....for sure.

Tony E
Thu, 11/30/2006 - 5:24pm

Lol, now he is interesting. He comes from the Sask Junior Leagues which is a step or so below the OHL. I did some poking around. I have been to the Battlefords. It is up in northern Sask and is an old trading post dating back to the 1700's.
Here is a website for his last team http://northstars.ca/

Ok, back to the serious hockey talk before scoops has a coronary or something. Sorry officer no fun police.

Thu, 11/30/2006 - 5:25pm

Michael George in his last season of junior had 74 points in 55 games. He also had 185 penalty minutes.

Tony E
Thu, 11/30/2006 - 5:28pm

The numbers are good but keep in mind it is not a high level junior league.

Can George Michael take the body?
